Drop Zone Cargo-Release Glider (SmartLab Toys) is a cargo plane made of plastic foam that holds a pig (the cargo) in a cargo bay. You turn a timer, hold the timer stop button, and throw the plane. The plane will drop the pig. You try to throw the plane so the pig lands in desired area made by four flags. The objective is to have fun while learning math and science by doing the challenges that come with the kit. I did not think it was effective. I wish the plane flew better.
